The hotel is located somewhat away but with good subway connection to the center. For a short break the hotel is very good, for longer stays, there is better hotels in Barcelona. read hotel review

Metro station on the other side of the road, staff is very friendly, breakfast buffet is very good. More positive does not exist to say. The hotel is under no circumstances 4-star level and is worn. It is located directly on a main road and is therefore quite loud. The roof pool was cleaned daily, it found but obscuration bands, as you for painting be used, the partly herunterhingen but never removed. The front door to our room had a gap of at least 2-3 centimeter the hallway. The bathroom/toilet had no ventilation, but had the glass door to the ... room now completely a crack, so that all smells into the room penetrated. The handle on the door wobbled considerably. In the room was a pillar! The tv-device was partly. Behind the pillar. Our two-bed-room had a closet with 4 hangers. The two single beds were on roles, the not fix left, so the beds with the slightest movement either to the side or to the front moved. Between basing and wall there was a circa 15 centimeter wide 'path'. One wanted to the single armchair in the room, you had to over the bed climbing, even if you the windows to the curtain to the side. Open anyway because of the noise not possible. Sat in the chair you had in about 50 centimeter distance the column in front of the face. The neighbor room was exactly the same tiny, alone it had no pillar in the room. The photos on the homepage are not nearly the size of the average room. read hotel review

Very nice three star hotel with good metro connection, the breakfast is very good and plentiful-only in 2 layers manner without individual Gästeanpassung -watch out for large groups. For the size this hotel with accordingly many rooms the breakfast room is too small. Beware: there is an old and new part. read hotel review

The check-in and check-out went smoothly, English! We had two huge rooms with kitchenette, tv, balcony etc. despite a room to the street it was never loud. Cleanliness and food. Location is ideal for a city break. About five minutes by foot to the metro, a grocery shop and restaurants are just around the corner. In the metro on bags and pocket watch out! Locals we wanted to rob on the first day. Very friendly staff. Took a taxi to the airport, this came within 15 minutes again at any time Atena hotel! read hotel review

Hotel is located across the street from underground station Clot. There is not much nearby except a few small grocery stores. But that's why you very central, short distance from all the major sights with subway. Hotel is a bit dated, but everything is ok. Full buffet breakfast. Room for a city trip also ok. drawback: safe with key, no fridge. Air conditioning worked perfectly. Towels were changed daily. Front desk/staff was friendly and tried hard. Rooftop pool tiny and not inviting, but rest of roof terrace very nicely decorated. read hotel review

The review may sound sounding partly hard, but given that supposed to be a 4 star, it is more than justified. The hotel was located directly on a 8 laned road. Lobby is in order, bright and not quite so worn out as the rooms. Guests were many Italians. The size of the room was good. Two single beds instead of a double bed, a little worn. Otherwise dresser, small table, small couch. Everything unfortunately were dirty!!! Blood everywhere on the walls of mosquitoes (hopefully only serves those. ), rust marks on the bed, dark hair. Many stains on the ... couch and dirt. All black grout moldy in the bathroom. The hair dryer is with the electricity wires from a hook in the bathroom attached, very marginal. Towels were clean. Request to put together, the sheets were also changed, the couch was dirty. The room is very loud (and we are not fussy!! ). read hotel review

    The receptionist spoke hardly any English and leads schäkert long personal telephone calls or with friends rum, while you wait on check-in. English is spoken very poorly all only. One understood it but with multiple Repeat. Really friendly made us feel only the cleaning lady, sad. Bed sheets were only changed after complaing twice request. Our luggage was in the luggage room, on our request that the luggage, we only got the snippy to get reply, the competent would be not. That was it. Also, he was called not, rather I even to search for the Kofferjungen. Bad service, bad attitude ...

    A minimal plus could be the free wireless internet, if it is justified and quick work. The pool is maximum 1,4m deep and so small like a hot tub. Unfortunately no joke. The photo shown on the website is more than flattering to say the.

The pool was mini and the water is not clean. The room was old and was not a 4 star standard. The mattresses were worn, the light and the TV remote did not work. The trash can was broken and the floor very damaged. The walls were made of cardboard, you could hear everything from the neighbors. The front desk staff were annoyed. One positive is the easy access to the metro, there is a metro station 2 minutes from the hotel. There is also bars and cafes around the corner and you could quickly toward Sagrada Familia, where there ... are lots of supermarkets and internet cafes. The hotel is ok but the regular rates could I don't want to pay for! read hotel review
